THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

Books win awards. Books drink white wine. Books are discussed in hushed tones by earnest scholars. Books are genteel, books are mellow, books are housed in libraries where there is no talking. It’s hard to remember that books can be a punch in the nose, a bottle of beer broken over the head, a gob spat in the eye. Amiri Baraka’s in-your-face plays, Tom Wolfe’s go-go new journalism, Kathy Acker’s punk poetry. These writers set literature on fire and readers could either get on board or fuck off. James Herbert was one of them…”

The Outsider and Others | H.P. Lovecraft | 1939

First Edition. The first publication from Arkham House and first collection of Lovecraft’s stories, published posthumously, which would go on to not only to have an enormous influence on horror fiction, but on film and music as well.

Very Good plus in an about Very Good dust jacket. Light bumps to the top corners, and a slight lean. Jacket is rubbed, with light toing to the spine and rear panel, with chips and tears overall. Still, a mostly presentable example of the scarce dust jacket.

"…this week sees the release of (Emily Carroll’s) highly-anticipated first major book release, Through the Woods, a collection of six atmospheric horror stories, including the superb His Face All Red, and having read it, I can attest to both it’s quality and the power Carroll’s work carries on the printed page. If you were wondering whether it’s worth picking up, I can reassure you on that front also: this is a book you want in your collection.

"On the eve of the book’s release, here’s an interview with the artists herself, discussing favourite artists, the horror of children’s books, starting out, differences in approach between print and online comics, careers, future projects, and more…"

After destroying dozens of stories because they were just no good, I reached a point where I could write a publishable story without composing a rough draft that required deletions and additions and revisions for style and sense. That didn’t mean the stories were perfect. Far from it. But they were as good as I could make them at the time. And whenever a story was reprinted—from a magazine to an anthology and then to a collection—I made revisions, often quite extensive revisions. There’s always room for improvement in anything one writes…”

"For his 1960s project on children’s dreams, legendary photographer Arthur Tress visualizes the subconscious fears of the innocent mind. While working with educator Richard Lewis of The Touchstone Center, he observed an exercise in which young people were asked to construct poems and paintings of their dreams; inspired, he began collaborating with children to create haunting silver gelatin photographs…"
